In June 1967, we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.' "Noam Chomsky, "The Fateful Triangle."

Only after this did the Palestinians appear. Before this time they didn't exist.

You don't undersatand, Palestinians were a ancient people who were nomads, traveling from Africa to Asia. But when England/Egypt owned the land they didn't exist, but the day Israel was fromed again on British owned land, the Palestinians all of a sudden appeared out of thin air claiming land was stolen. It was the greatest magic trick of all time. Today, british land, no Palestinians, next day, Israel, poof, Palestinians appear saying land was stolen.
The Palestine Arab Delegation to the Secretary of State for the Colonies.
February 21st, 1922.
We wish to express our thanks to the Right Honourable the Secretary of State for the Colonies, for his courtesy in allowing us to see the draft of a proposed Palestine Order in Council embodying a scheme of Government for Palestine, and to discuss the same in our capacity of representatives of the Arab People of Palestine.
We would, therefore, submit the following observations:—
Whilst the position in Palestine is, as it stands to-day, with the British Government holding authority by an occupying force, and using that authority to impose upon the people against their wishes a great immigration of alien Jews, many of them of a Bolshevik revolutionary type, no constitution which would fall short of giving the People of Palestine full control of their own affairs could be acceptable.
If the British Government would revise their present policy in Palestine, end the Zionist con-dominium, put a stop to all alien immigration and grant the People of Palestine — who by Right and Experience are the best judges of what is good and bad to their country — Executive and Legislative powers, the terms of a constitution could be discussed in a different atmosphere. If to-day the People of Palestine assented to any constitution which fell short of giving them full control of their own affairs they would be in the position of agreeing to an instrument of Government which might, and probably would, be used to smother their national life under a flood of alien immigration.

The universe is God's and as such the earth. He gave it(the land of known as Israel today) to Abraham, who had Issac who had Jacob who became Israel. Ishmael was born first to Abraham and birthright usually went to the first born son. This was no surprise though because God told them it wouldn't be given to Ishmael. It didn't in this case and Ishmael's descendants are mad.
Jacob's brother twin brother Esau was also born first but sold his birthright to Jacob. Esau's descendants are mad also.
Throw in the fact that Abraham remarried after his first wife died and then more sons were born and were sent away and they are mad.
The Bible hints that the land that is known as Israel is the center of the earth geographically. The land area of Israel is a big deal to God. Some believe that this is also where Eden was and that Jerusalem is where the garden(Garden of Eden) was. Break it down further and some believe where the the Ark of the Covenant stood in the Holy of Holies in the temple is the exact spot where the tree of life was.
That actually makes sense if you are familiar with the Bible.

What Bible are you reading? The Bible I have has footnotes saying that the Garden of Eden was in southern Iraq. And, what about the verses I quoted saying that the land was ALREADY inhabited when the Jews were in Egypt?
